nvidia-settings not holding? [SOLVED]

I was tweaking my xorg. This is what it looks like currently:

It's working fine. I then did "nvidia-settings" to make changes there as I saw fit, and my settings don't hold from session to session, nor are they even applied in the current session. When I do "nvidia-settings" in terminal the nvidia settings utility does pop up but I get this:

Eh, I have a feeling the whole "error cannot open display misbarch 0 0" and "no Display connection" thing has something to do to it.. but why can't it assign those attributes? Is it a permissions thing? I have no idea!

EDIT: I added my /root/nvidia-settings-rc file:

The same here. No root permission needed. Just remove hostname from the file. For example with this command:

sed -i 's/^'`hostname`'//g' .nvidia-settings-rc
